The 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a suspension bridge in the state of Washington that dramatically collapsed on November 7, 1940. The road of the bridge twisted and vibrated violently under the 40-mile-per-hour winds on the day of the collapse.
Lawrence Township will be telling the story of man vs. nature and construction vs. deconstruction through Front Ensemble Arranger Craig Loeffler’s soundtrack of a unique musical selection. Musical selections include Particles of the Universe by American composers Dan Romer and Behn Zeitlin, Alan and Uboats by French film composer Alexandre Desplat, and more.
Staff members include Ensemble Director/Battery Arranger Neal Titus, Visual Ensemble Director Julie Reid Cole, Drill Designer Andrew Ebert, Visual Technician Cal Lennon, Front Ensemble Directors Jeff Willy and John Kroetz, Battery Director/Battery Arranger Tim Henderson, Choreographer Christine Ghinder, Cymbal Technician Tori Lynne Rito, Front Ensemble and Battery Technician Jesse Mack, Sound Designer Matt Hahn, Sound Technician Zac Felli, and Graphic Designer Molly Favret.
